      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. Haunted Car

    Mechanic friend thinks the storm put the alarm off which drained the battery. Quick jump later and it seems ok.
  2. Haunted Car

    To make things worse I've just tried starting it for work and the battery is dead
  3. Haunted Car

    Today we've had quite a large hail shower and quite a lot of rain... At 6pm one of my daughters shouted to me that the car alarm was going off. I went out and unlocked the car to stop it. When I was going to pick up daughter #2 I was passing the focus in the wife's car and noticed the interior light was on, the indicators were flashing as if the hazards button was pressed and the front window wipers were moving slowly. As I was in a rush I couldn't stop to look. When I got back (15mins later) it had stopped. I popped the bonnet but it doesn't look like there was any water on the fusebox Any suggestions other than getting a good priest?

  6. Interior Trim Clip - MK2

    I had to remove my doorcard to fix the door strap the other day. In doing so I've broken a trim clip that keeps the door handle connected to the door before the trim panel goes back on. This clip is held in place by a T25 screw. I've been to a Halfords and a local car parts shop and neither had the right clip. Can anyone let me know the type of clip?

  8. MK2 Door Stay Catch

    Anyone? 😢
  9. MK2 Door Stay Catch

    Quite sometime ago, a gust of wind blew my driver side door open and broke the tie strap. Can anyone answer the following: 1. Will a 5 door tie strap be OK on a 3 door? 2. What's involved in fitting ?
  10. Radio / sat nav ststem

    You can keep an eye on the classified section here on the forum or look on eBay. Another alternative is the eonon head units.

  12. Long time hire car question

    Thanks for the suggestions guys! She's finally getting her car repaired tomorrow 😃
  13. Hi, Roughly two months ago my sister was on in a minor RTC. Her car was looked at by a garage and needs some minor repair work. A couple of days later a nearly new hire car was dropped off and she was told the garage will call when they require her to drop her car off for repair. She's now been running around in a nearly new focus for roughly 2 months and is in no rush to get her 11 year old civic looked at by the garage. Can anyone shed any light on the possibility that she may incur some sort of bill for this? She's under the impression that neither she nor the neighbour that crashed into her will get a bill for this but I'm worried one of them might since she's not been forthcoming in approaching the garage to get her own car fixed.
  14. That's awesome thanks!
  15. Have you got a link to this box? I've had a nosey on eBay but can't seem to see anything matching your description.
